Margaret Anne “Anne” Gale, 91, of Sylvania, Ohio passed away peacefully June 4, 2018, surrounded by love. She was born April 30, 1927 in Richmond, Indiana to parents William D. Willson and Anna C. (Dafler)Willson, and was the second of three children. Anne was a graduate of Purdue University where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Education.
Anne was a proud wife, mother and grandmother. She loved spending time with her family and delighted in watching it grow with the addition of each daughter/son-in-law, grandchild and great-grandchild.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband, William R. Gale, a daughter Mary Anne and her parents and siblings. Left to cherish her memory are children: Bill Jr. (Janet), Linda (John) Horist, David (Elba), Karen and Carol (Scott) Guillozet; grandchildren Ryan (Carrie), Tim (fiancé Jeannine), CJ, Scott, Vicki, Veronica, Daniel (Jenna), Michael, Allison, Tyler (Sydney) and Grace, Zac, Tara and Clay Guillozet; great-grandchildren Finn and Hanna.
Anne loved traveling with Bill and was happiest when her entire family was together during family reunions. She enjoyed baking and cooking everyone’s favorite foods, sitting on her back porch and watching the birds and squirrels all year around. She also enjoyed shopping for gifts for her family and fabric. Sewing and quilting were two of her favorite hobbies.
For almost 50 years, Anne was an active and faithful member of the Sylvania United Church of Christ where she spent a lot of time singing in the choir, spear-heading the annual Christmas Bazaar, participating on Rotary teams and helping during funerals. She loved her church family like she loved her own family: selflessly and unconditionally.
Anne’s life will be celebrated with a Memorial Service Sunday, June 10 at 12:30 p.m. at the Sylvania United Church of Christ, 7240 Erie St. Sylvania, OH, after she is laid to rest at Memorial Park Cemetery in Indianapolis. Anne always said she wanted to be remembered for two things: her children and grandchildren. Anne will be missed!
